REVIEW: 2010 Pinot Noir, Paul Bosc Estate Vineyard

Tuesday, February 11
Susan Desjardins

Produced only in select years, this big, structured Pinot Noir displays intense aromas and flavours of cherry and blackcurrant matched to an underlying earthiness, vanilla and a whiff of smoke. The tannin makes its presence felt followed by a rush of ripe fruit mingling with notes of spicy toast and dried herbs persisting on the mouth-watering, lengthy finish—it’s both elegant and powerful. Decant before serving with beef tenderloin. 

Rating: 4.5/5 stars

Price: $35

You can purchase this wine at Vintages after the February 15th release, in the CdC stores in Toronto and Ottawa, at the winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake and on-line.
